Clarity Essential Oil Blend
You can probably think of times when your thoughts are clouded or you’re just too distracted to work. Clarity is my secret weapon for times when clear thinking is needed. I have found it helpful when I need to focus on a task or project. This very useful blend from Young Living smells sharp at first, then warms and sweetens with the cardamom and coriander it contains.
Clarity For the Task at Hand
I had Clarity in my oil arsenal when the time came for me to wrap up the writing on my final paper for my Master’s Degree. As I reported in my post on Stress Away, I found the completion of my paper very stressful and taxing. I’d look at what I had written, consider changes that were needed, and simply become overwhelmed by the task.
When I finally decided to get that paper done, Clarity was part of the equation. My approach: Set aside ample time. Minimize distractions. Use lots of Stress Away. Apply Clarity, diluted. Use Peppermint and Lemon in the diffuser to enhance the effects of the oil blends. Have plenty of tea and drinking water on hand.
Clarity: a Topical Blend
The label on a bottle of Clarity indicates that this blend should be used topically and diluted 1:1 with a carrier oil. I will admit that the first time I tried using this blend I ignored the dilution instructions. I applied a drop neat to my temples and it felt a bit hot. Relief was quick when I rubbed a drop of carrier oil into the hot spots. After that experience, I dilute as instructed. I put a drop of V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex in my palm, then add a drop of Clarity. Using the index finger of my opposite hand, I mix the two oils going clockwise. I then apply the diluted oil to my temples, along the edges of my ears, and to the brain VitaFlex points on my great toes.
Clarity is a blend of Basil, Cardamom, Rosemary, Peppermint, Coriander, Geranium, Bergamot, Lemon, Ylang-Ylang, Roman Chamomile, and Palmarosa essential oils, with Jasmine absolute.
Clarity, along with its partner Brevity, are considered virtues of thought, speaking, and writing. I do hope Gary Young will introduce a new blend for Brevity soon. I can think of many instances where I would use that blend.
